David is a man we can all relate to. We may not have committed murder or adultery, but we all know the tension of sin, guilt and shame. He tried to hide his sin and committed one crime after another until he was confronted by Nathan the prophet.
Like David, if you’re in the middle of a mess today, don’t hide, don’t flee… own it up. Don’t be its prisoner any longer. Confess your sin to God. And God in all His mercy, grace and compassion will never turn away a repentant heart. He will wash you white as snow. His blood will make you whole.
Dear Jesus, Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin. Amen Ps 51:2
